8:02 pm
a continuous disappeared right we heard there was. a call for talks to resume do you think that's possible. until now i don't think with the with the forces for for freedom and change perhaps. if they responded positively to some of the conditions remember the force of. freedom and change they called for the transitional military council to acknowledge responsibility about the killing that happened last week they called for setting up an inquiry maybe a regional international inquiry into who are the people responsible for that they call for also lifting the bands or on internet and media and release of prisoners so if these conditions then that will allow. because it is not only for for the forces fortresses for freedom and change but also the anger on the street because the forces for freedom and change cannot risk going back to negotiations with the
8:03 pm
transitional military council why this situation remains as it is we see the troops from the. response forces still in the streets of khartoum they have done a lot of. repression against ordinary people so it's quite difficult to expect and then these conditions that the talks with the group will resume of course the military council talks about negotiating with other political forces as well and this is going also to create divisions within the political parties hopefully hopefully that. the release of of the detainees signs the beginning of response positive response to demands by the forces for freedom and change in the meantime the civil disobedience continues it seems like it may be a plan that has some power to work does it does remember the response from the
8:04 pm
street even came before the forces for. freedom and change and now says people the moment they heard about the crackdown on monday they walked the streets not only in the capital khartoum but in many other cities and towns that so the anger. is quite intense right now especially after people saw what happened and not only through the media they felt that industry they sow the malaysian and even intrusion into their homes so that created a quite intense environment hopefully this will stop and people move into after that negotiation that would result in an orange the situation we'll leave it there for now thanks very much indeed. still ahead here on al-jazeera why the word of god for one is noise pollution for another we take a look at the control the sea surrounding some of the gunman's church. everybody

8:21 pm
headlines here announcer got more news coming right up of the inside story from. this year's free for women's world cup has kicked off in front with more fanfare than ever before so is women's football finally being taken seriously and why is the top female player not taking part this is inside story.
8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program i'm martin dennis now the world's best footballers are in france to fight for their sport's biggest prize no we haven't confused it with the world cup in russia last year we're actually talking about the women's world cup the 8th edition of the tournament is being played in 9 cities over the next month football's world governing body pfieffer wants to reach a record $1000000000.00 television viewers and more international broadcasters a showing the matches live but the world's best female footballer won't be taking to the pitch norway's aid ahead is angry at the lack of support from her country's football association despite this the defending champions the united states hope the tournament will bring in new fans. i think this surname and itself is going to. change so many things for women's football and and how we play
8:23 pm
and how the world sees us and how much knowledge people around the world. of us and of us as people as well and i think you know these big world stages is where like we can gain so much exposure from like even people that don't even know about soccer people come out and watch and get to know the players and get to know the team so i think just this tournament and self is going to bring so much knowledge to us into the game and what we're trying to do and what we're trying to do for women's football now when it comes to the football world cup there were huge differences between the men's and the women's tournament the women's world cup this year has $24.00 teams compare that to $32.00 in the men's the prize money is $30000000.00 that's a mere fraction of the men's prize on an individual level lionel messi of barcelona for example earns $320.00 times more than aid to head the world's top female
8:24 pm
player but beyond the pay disparity many argue that fall less is spent on promoting and marketing the women's game and with less publicized he comes fewer viewers last year an estimated 3500000000 people watched the men's world cup in russia while only 750000000 people watched the women's competition in 2015. all right let's introduce our panel now in the northwestern french city of ren we have tatiana handy she ran women's football at fee for and is now head of women's football in switzerland thanks for joining us in denise in the south of france who got brought to her as a football writer covering the tournament for the associated press news agency welcome to you. both rob let me start with you and ask you to compare the kind of
8:25 pm
facilities the kind of. preparation that's been made for this women's world cup is it better than say a men's well couple of the women's world cup so you've covered. whether they different facilities to some degree between the men's world cup in russia was last year and here in france for the women's smaller state stages have been used to some degree for game on friday night in paris and 40000 seat. stadium rather than the start of france which is far bigger so they're not using that say the biggest stadiums in places also teams don't have 6 training bases like they do at the men's world cup and course there won't be as many fans this time as well and still a big challenge let's watch the ring more fans in so the tournament to actually see the best women players but in comparison to other women's well cops is it better
8:26 pm
a range does it feel as though women's football has arrived. well it certainly seems that feat for is taking women's football far more seriously than many years ago there really is a ramping up of the structure around the for the moment and that's why you're seeing these clubs where the players come from the sebring compensation out for release in the players like in the men's game and is increasing the amounts of money in prize money but not enough according to just many across the game and you know there are still holes well a lot more to be done but there are things like this is the 1st book with video system referees chief is the best in that it doesn't exist anywhere else in the women's day no witness league actually has the capability of financially so to really put in things like video system every so plays with spirits in women's vocal hair like many don't get to experience on a weekly basis around the world because there are still many players were playing only thing we don't even. ride tatiana in ren so it sounds from what rob is saying
8:27 pm
that there's been a lot more investment a bit more effort made by fee for for the women's game was it taken so long you were head of women's football at fee for something like 18 years until the year 26 i mean why wasn't more if it made before. well i can promise you that there were a lot of efforts made to change that within the women's football committee and the reason our department continues the proposed changes and some of them be were lucky enough that they were applied and some others didn't and why did it and has of course a lot to do with the development of women's football worldwide there are huge differences between countries which we also able to see at this tournament there's very advanced countries very professional countries and other countries who are lacking behind so in in an effort to you know go step by step not everything was possible from one day to the other but then of course there was also
8:28 pm
a political decision and that is still true today it's a question of how much. or a confederation or any football association worldwide or any club how much do you want to invest in women's football and it has to be way more and what happens in right now is only kind of a step by step. too small steps basically on how much to improve the conditions right there's a has still a long long way to go for either but the policy the policy leaders got to come from the football's world governing body and would you say that your efforts to improve women's the women's game were had by the sepp blatter regime of course which was maad in controversy and scandal for much of the time. it has nothing to do with race a blood disorder controversy and scandals i think that that's another part of issues in stories around football and worldwide football for women's football generally speaking and worldwide speaking there's not enough interest there's not
8:29 pm
enough i think seriousness there is not enough decision making power if you look at all these organizations and you look in detail on the expertise in women's football and the number of women in war in the decision making process then it's obvious to see that there's a huge lack of know how and that of course resonates in priorities and in also political decisions and in this area men's football in the men's world cup and the elite level of women's football is still dominating which gives women's football only a little area to grow and this discrepancy has to change right and rob coming to you i mean the world's best female footballers not taking part 8 ahead i mean she said it's not about the money particularly although there is a huge disparity that we've discussed. but it's about the attitude she says that women's football is still not taken seriously specifically by our own her own football authorities in her home country of norway i mean it takes
8:30 pm
a lot more doesn't it than just giving giving the women players parity of pay. yeah i mean in some ways it's about the prominence as well and on the bigger picture i've been in paris before coming to nice and you go down the sands elisei you go on the paris metro and you don't see any sign really of the women's world cup what you do see around the metro is adverts for france games and then to france men's games taking place in 3 months time so the french federation is prioritized its advertising budget on trying to get people into saying it's meant to a several months down the line rather than advertising and some might say is just about and what is branding really do but it's really about raising awareness across the entire city and it's high country to try to build up the players and to raise their status and that profile france is opening game for now when against south korea it did get an audience of i relented 1000000 in france that shows certainly is an appetite but i do referencing in norway they have introduced equal pay
8:31 pm
between the menus and women's national teams but it is about the sense of where do you fit in the priorities of the federation and the fact that you cannot have been bombed or when they're here after the world cup norway had a big means that we do actually have a significant issue it shines a light on that at the same time you've got the americans who have come into this woke up while. really old with the u.s. federation without a lawsuit discrimination get equal pay and equal conditions where they are the far more successful national team in the usa that men don't even qualify for the world cup and the men's world cup that is in russia last year. tatiana it seems very much as though the key to making women's football a more more commercially viable and therefore simulating more corporate interest. cut would come from the football governing bodies is that right they have to be
8:32 pm
persuaded somehow to invest more in the promotion of the game and indeed the marketing of the players. i think everybody is very much responsible or decision makers i wouldn't put it only on fifi as of old governing body they are the confederation said the national associations and i think they all have a role to play for fever as it were counting bodies it's hard to influence really women's football structure in a country you know and i don't think it's their road to develop women's football in a specific country but it should be their road to put a governance in place and rules and regulations which have to be followed by by countries you see so many differences in terms of preparation if you compare maybe you know as a as an extreme example to mike i mean the u.s. it's huge the message meant going into women's football in the u.s. and it's very hard for john mica to even build up their proper league and nationally and of course there's a huge gap and i think these things have to change and that's something i could
8:33 pm
make mandatory to federations to have a certain structure and to have a certain distribution of the money in terms of protect percentages or core quote or you know there's different ways how to do it but what we can see both by now is that this is just not women's football is not treated fairly in many associations and that i think should intervene then every federation should have as its own objective to be able to save you treating women's football as it is as a most popular growing biggest growth opportunities sport not only in terms of participation but also in terms of commercial success and you can see it lock in and now in in some countries and here at the women's world cup as some sponsors sponsoring great jobs so does has to go down to every federation and i really think there's a long way to go if you look at federations i have to say that as well in south america brazil argentina you know powerhouses in men's football and having so many difficulties in women's football and that is something you cannot explain.
